Challenges

I've never tried a book challenge before, but I'm going to try the What's In A Name challenge this coming year.

The requirements are to read a book from each of the categories (taken from the introductory post at the What's in A Name blog:
*Dates: January 1, 2009 through December 31, 2009

*The Challenge: Choose one book from each of the following categories.

1. A book with a "profession" in its title. Examples might include: The Book Thief, The Island of Dr. Moreau, The Historian

2. A book with a "time of day" in its title. Examples might include: Twilight, Four Past Midnight, The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-Time

3. A book with a "relative" in its title. Examples might include: Eight Cousins, My Father's Dragon, The Daughter of Time

4. A book with a "body part" in its title. Examples might include: The Bluest Eye, Bag of Bones, The Heart of Darkness

5. A book with a "building" in its title. Examples might include: Uncle Tom's Cabin, Little House on the Prairie, The Looming Tower

6. A book with a "medical condition" in its title. Examples might include: Insomnia, Coma, The Plague
I'm thinking of the following tentative list:
1: Beast Master by Andre Norton
2: Caress of Twilight by Laurell K. Hamilton
3: Children of Hurin by J.R.R. Tolkien
4: Lord John and the Hand of Devils by Diana Gabaldon
5: Fortress of Frost And Fire by Mercedes Lackey
6: Plague Ship by Andre Norton

Some of these are going to be re-reads but not all of them. One or two, I've had for over a year and have yet to read them, so this should be a good push to get reading.
